In the summer, Bolshoy Vudyavr will continue to operate. Tourists will be able to climb to the top of Mount Aikkuaivenchorr, which offers breathtaking views of Kirovsk and the Khibiny Mountains. Hiking trails of varying difficulty also start there. The Platô panoramic complex will also continue its work, the menu of which combines northern hospitality, the flavor of the Kola Arctic and a respectful attitude to the traditions of European cuisine.
